Considering EA's history of monetizing every aspect of their games and the lengths they have gone to in the past to maximise their profits on the smallest of content (The Sims 2 stuff packs anyone), the last thing anyone would have expected was Star Wars: Battlefront II.
The space fights for Battlefront II are being made by Criterion - the same developer who created the first Battlefront's side title, Rogue One VR mission, which rolled out a year ago. We find out that the squadron is being led by none other than Poe Dameron from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
We don't get to see Luke in action for long. Darth Vader sits in his TIE Fighter picking off Rebels above Fondor, an Imperial shipyard. As players, we'll be able to fly a variety of different and iconic ships, such as TIE fighters, A-wings, and even the Millennium Falcon. There's also a very quick clip of Boba Fett's Slave-I starfighter making the rounds, but there's no telling exactly which side he's on (though it's a pretty fair bet he's going to be on the Empire's side).
Star Wars Battlefront II will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on Origin for PC Nov. 17. Here is where the creation of a clone army for the Galactic Republic took place.
Ahead of the scheduled official reveal at Gamescom 2017, next week, a trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront II, Battlefront II's Starfighter Assault trailer, was leaked.
